Lavelle Williams is a 17 year old Sacramento Singer-songwriter. This young artist contacted me back in January for studio portraits he needed for his music career. I was of course very excited as I always love and enjoy working with artist. We had a phone consultation with him and his mom and they explained to me the purposed of the photographs and the style he wanted, which they mentioned, matched the style I feature in the men’s portraiture gallery on my website. I didn’t have the chance to meet Lavelle in person before, so I was very intrigued the day of the shooting. He came to the studio with his dad and I can say he looked a bit nervous and anxious at the same time, it was the first time he had a professional photo session.
To break the ice, we had a little chat before the shooting, he talked about his music and he also showed me some of the outfits he brought for the session, we picked three outfits and started the session. Since I noticed he was still a bit nervous I asked his dad to play some of his songs and asked Lavelle to sing his favorite one for me. I could noticed the shift once he started singing, I can say this young man really loves music!!. He sang “Amazing” one of the songs he plans to include in his first album, that song’s so catchy, I can’t get it out of my head.
I just want to finish this post by sharing some portraits from his awesome photo session.
